Yes, you need magnecor red! never looked back since. I think slowly but surely you have all the goodies I had on my car when I saw you last, -- how's about a 531 head?
Anyway, enjoy it when it's there. No plan for a continental trip this year, - had to spend money on the house.

I have since your last visit the Magnecor KV85 leads in the car, and they're perfect! But I've to change it to be accorded to my new ignition setup... No news now for a 531 head, but I don't think I need it so much... Don't forget it, my actual 530 is ported and run very well if you remember...

I'll decrease the spending money in the car also, I'll plan some holidays with my girlfriend and my children's...

Ahh good idea, I decreased it close to 00,-- only service, test etc. -- I even walked away from a complete 740 GLT estate with B234 engine for 200 Euro, -- I can have it anytime, but other things to do in live,
Cheers, Hans

Yes, I'm happy how the car's run! Next mod to come (I hope this week) is the wasted spark ignition...I hope it'll increase a bit its performance...

Anyway, I don't know what to modify now... I can maybe afford a T4 turbo soon, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea to install it or not...

About the wasted spark board, I buy this one because I've found this one... It's running, so I don't pay attention at the size

The dizzy plug is a rubber part? How it stay in place? With my solution, no risk to loose it...

My car have the stock flywheel, so I think it's the dual mass unit...and I don't think to change it before a while, because my clutch is ok and I don't have so much money to spend now...

I clearly feel the difference now, the idle is smooth as silk, and my engine pulls really better everywhere in all the power band!

The wasted spark is definitely a very nice gain

Hi Alex
I go with maddog -- I am pretty much at the limit of my dual mass flywheel and clutch, -- Clutch was new only 15 tsd. km. I have the sachs performance pressure plate (new) a disc organic from the diesel and an almost new dogdish flywheel sitting in the attic, waiting to go in, as soon as the old one gives up. I like your design of the plate for the back of the engine. At the time of my 740, I just used an old dizzy and replaced the shaft with a big bolt.
Happy Volvo Times!
Hans

Hi Hans,

As soon as the stock one dies, I'll install a "real" clutch combo for sure...

Thanks for your comment about my "dizzy block off plate", the main idea behind that was to remove any kind of ugly parts at the end of the head...

To put another one in its place? ;)


This thing is not only made of Rubber... its a metalplate coated with rubber... also the B6304 has this (slightly larger foshore) but it holds perfect without a "hold in place" bracket ;)

there's a reason that ipd sells a plate to hold those plugs in

if yours doesn't leak or interfere, then run it!
